Professor Sandro Stringari

CTAMOP is delighted to announce that the 2016 Bates Lectures will be given by Prof. Sandro Stringari (INO-CNR-BEC Center and Univ. of Trento).

Prof. Stringari is a world-leading expert in the physics of ultracold bosons and fermions with particular emphasis on superfluidity, collective oscillations and rotational properties of trapped BEC. With Lev Pitaevskii, he is the author of one of the most popular monographs on BECs.

The Bates Lectures are aimed at students and staff members in the School of Mathematics and Physics to provide insight into important topics in the Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics area. They are delivered on a yearly basis by an eminent scientist usually nominated by the staff members at CTAMOP.

The schedule, venue, and topics of this years Lectures are as follows:

Title: Superfluidity in ultracold atomic gases
Venue: Bell Lecture Theatre

Tuesday, 24 May 2016 at 11:00-12:30
Wednesday, 25 May 2016 at 11:00-12:30
Thursday, 26 May 2016 at 11:00-12:30

You are all cordially invited to the Lectures, whose attendance is free. PhD students are particularly encouraged to attend and participate actively.
